Mother/daughter team will be competing together at this year's Senior Olympics in Birmingham, Alabama

ORIENTAL, N.C. (WNCT) — Fay Bond discovered her talent for jumping unexpectedly.

“My husband died in 2011, and I had to step across the ditch to get to his grave,” Bond said. “And my daughter said, ‘Oh mama you can do the senior Olympics’.”

Her 67-year-old daughter, Irma Bond was an All-Conference and MVP athlete in track and field in high school and together they are competing in the 2017 National Senior Games in Birmingham, Alabama.

“I’m not the fastest person in the state but I compete, and there are so many people that just don’t go out there,” Irma Bond said.
